Kate Winslet is getting regal.
The Academy Award winner is circling The Favourite, a new historical drama about Queen Anne of Great Britain. She would play the monarch’s (Olivia Colman) confidante, Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough, with whom she was tight until political differences torn them asunder.
Meanwhile, Emma Stone also has her eye on a part in the project – that of Abigail Masham, the duchess’ socially clever cousin.
That...is gonna be one fun and intriguing court, huh.
